I'm running my life at kind of an insane speed right now. I'm prepping for a big event at the end of this month, more details to come, and am racing through my days trying to get it all done. I need a filling lunch, and as fast as possible.

Enter: the no-chop salad. Trader Joe's makes this workday lunch possible, with zero chopping, by using a few key players; specifically pre-cooked lentils, shredded veggies, and crumbled goat cheese.

I like to combine my dressings in mason jars and shake them. Pour over all the ingredients in a bowl. Enjoy this salad and the added bonus to no chopping: no cleanup! Such a win.
